Former middleweight champion Danny Jacobs (32-2, 29 KOs) sees himself as having far too many advantages for his unbeaten opponent Luis Arias (18-0, 9 KOs) when these to face each other in a little over 2 weeks from now on November 11 on HBO Boxing at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.
Arias, 27, looks like a pretty good fighter. He might surprise a lot of people on November 11 and pull off a major upset against Jacobs; although I tend to doubt that he’ll be able to beat a fighter like Jacobs. That’s a big ask for someone with so little experience against top level opposition at middleweight.
Danny “Miracle Man” Jacobs’ promoter Eddie Hearn has his fingers crossed that his new signee won’t slip on a banana skin this Saturday night against unbeaten Luis Arias (18-0, 9 KOs) in their fight at middleweight on HBO. Hearn sees Arias with nothing to lose in this fight, and everything to gain.
Danny Jacobs got his confidence builder fight out of the way last Saturday night in beating Luis Arias by a 12 round decision, and now he’s interested in facing Saul Canelo Alvarez or Gennady “GGG” Golovkin.
Jacobs’ promoter Eddie Hearn has already spoken to Peter Nelson of HBO to let him know that they’re ready and willing to step in to face Golovkin if Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo choose not to take the rematch with GGG. Jacobs (33-2, 29 KOs) wants to avenge his loss to Golovkin from March 18, as he feels he won that fight but wasn’t given credit for it by the 3 judges.
After six years of facing largely soft opposition, Daniel Jacobs (32-1, 29 KOs) has been ordered by the World Boxing Association to face IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (36-0, 33 KOs).
The two fighters’ management has negotiated the fight, and it’s now signed, sealed and delivered for March 18 at Madison Square Garden in New York. Jacobs is going to crumble early in this fight in the first two rounds if he gets hit with anything from Golovkin in my opinion.
Daniel “The Miracle Man” Jacobs believes that the Saul “Canelo” Alvarez vs. Gennady “GGG” Golovkin fight will be won by Canelo if he can take the shots from Golovkin. Jacobs thinks it comes down to whether Canelo can handle GGG’s power. If he can, then he beats him in their fight on September 16. Jacobs (32-2, 29 KOs) lost to Golovkin by a close 12 round unanimous decision last March. Jacobs believes he should have won the fight, and he wants a rematch with Golovkin in the worst way.
Daniel Jacobs says that he’s going to test IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin without a doubt in their fight on March 18, and that he’s going to give him respect inside the ring.
IBF super middleweight champion James “Chunky” DeGale (23-1-1, 14 KOs) has revealed his 3-fight plan to return to action following his shoulder injury. For starters, DeGale, 31, will be fighting on December 9 against an opponent still to be determined at the Copper Box Arena in London, UK.
DeGale will be defending his IBF super middleweight title in that fight in a voluntary defense.
Undefeated super middleweight Jamie Cox (21-0, 12 KOs) defeated Martin Fidel Rios (20-10-3, 11 KOs) by a 10 round points decision to capture the vacant WBO Inter-Continental super middleweight title on Saturday night at the Bolton Whites Hotel in Bolton. Referee Phil Edwards, who really had his hands full in controlling this fight, scored it 98-86 for Cox to give him the win.
Unbeaten American heavyweight Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller (19-0-1, 17 KOs) is hoping to get a fight against former Anthony Joshua victim Dillian Whyte (19-1, 15 KOs) in the U.S. Miller believes he’ll knock Whyte out if that fight happens.
Miller has been interested in fighting Whyte for some time, but he’s had no luck in getting him inside the ring. Whyte, 29, isn’t the one that makes his fights. His promoter Eddie Hearn is the match-maker for Whyte, and he’s been cool to the idea of putting him in with the 6’4” Miller.
Top Rank promoter Bob Arum might want to think hard before he matches his No.1 money fighter Manny Pacquiao against the unbeaten Jeff Horn on April 23, because there’s a very good chance that he’ll lose that fight to the 28-year-old Australian. Horn (16-0-1, 11 KOs) is very confident that he’s got the power, skills and boxing ability to give the Filipino star loss No.7.
Pacquiao was matched well by Arum in his last two fights against Tim Bradley and Jessie Vargas. Neither of those two fighters had any punching power to speak of, so it was an easy win for Pacquiao.
Jeff Horn (16-0-1, 11 KOs) says he’s been studying Juan Manuel Marquez’s brutal knockout of Manny Pacquiao from 2012 so that he can learn from him, and he plans on following what he learned this Saturday night when he faces the Filipino star at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia.
Top Rank promoter Bob Arum might have a live one in unbeaten Jeff Born (16-0-1, 11 KOs) as the next opponent for his top money fighter Manny Pacquiao (59-6-2, 38 KOs) for their math-up on April 23. I’m sure Arum doesn’t want Pacquiao to lose so soon after him making his comeback against Jessie Vargas, but things happen.
Horn, 28, seems to think he’s got the ability to beat the 38-year-old Pacquiao. That would obviously be terrible news for Arum if Pacquiao loses to Horn in a small money fight before he can face unbeaten Terence Crawford or Vasyl Lomachenko, two fighters that he’s talked about wanting to match against him.
With Manny Pacquiao (59-7-2, 38 KOs) saying he doesn’t have time in his busy schedule to face WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn (17-0-1, 11 KOs) in a rematch in November, Horn’s co-promoter Dean Lonergan is going to discuss with Pacquiao’s promoter’s at Top Rank the possibility of matching Horn against 42-year-old former 2-time super middleweight champion Anthony Mundine (47-8, 27 KOs).
WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn (17-0-1, 11 KOs) is being talked about defending his title against #3 WBO Bradley Skeete (27-1, 12 KOs) on November 12 in Brisbane, Australia.
Skeete, 29, would be the replacement for Manny Pacquiao, who couldn’t make the November date for a rematch against Horn due to his prior commitments in the senate in the Philippines.
Now that Manny Pacquiao has announced that he won’t be fighting for the remainder of 2017, it leaves WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn (17-0-1, 11 KOs) without an opponent for November.
Horn’s promoters at Duco Events are in the process of cutting a deal with #11 WBO Gary Corcoran (17-1,7 KOs) to step in and take the fight with Horn for November, according to Dan Rafael.
WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn (17-0-1, 11 KOs) wants to get a big mega-fight in Australia against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2018, but he may be stuck with Terence Crawford. A rematch between the 29-year-old Horn and Manny Pacquiao (59-7-2, 38 KOs) is the first order of business for the Australian fighter.
Strap in for April 23, fight fans.
The biggest boxing fight in Australia's history has been confirmed, with Aussie boxer Jeff Horn set to fight Filipino and reigning champion Manny Pacquiao in April.
The announcement was made at 2:30pm (AEDT) in Brisbane on Wednesday, with the fight set to be held on April 23.
The location is yet to be confirmed, but organisers are hopeful the fight will occur at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane -- calling for the Queensland Government's support. However, they do not secure funds and support in Brisbane the organisers will turn to other capital cities, and haven't ruled out the U.S. or the Middle East.
Fighting Senator Manny Pacquiao, the world's only 8-division champion, will defend his world welterweight title against Horn on July 2 in Brisbane, Australia.
The Brisbane boxer will continue his preparations today by sparring Mackay southpaw Liam Paro.
The highly ranked and totally untested #2 WBO Jeff Horn (16-0-1, 11 KOs) is thinking about the millions he’ll get if he can upset 38-year-old Manny Pacquiao (59-6-2, 38 KOs) to take his WBO welterweight title in a little over 2 months from now on July 2 at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia. A victory for the 29-year-old Horn would make him a big name in Australia, and that would obviously mean money for him over there.
Jeff Mayweather is picking Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) to beat IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady “GGG Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) in their big fight on September 16. Jeff says that Danny Jacobs created the blueprint in how to beat Golovkin in their fight last March, and all Canelo needs to do is follow that blueprint in order to be successful against him.
